NOTEABLE READ: A$AP Rocky 3 million dollar deal…

with 2 comments

Who? yea, A$AP Rocky recently signed with Sony for 3 Million Dollars. It seems like yesterday Rocky just started appearing on blogs and the music scene. A co-sign from Drake and he’s been on folks radar. Not hating at all just stunned… Oh yea, watching from the sidelines, he still has a lot to prove…

Pitchfork: A lot of rappers are moving away from big record deals and, as recently as last month, it seemed like you didn’t want to sign with a major, either. What changed your mind?

A$AP Rocky: About three million dollars. [Other rappers who don’t sign] are smart, but I feel like Sony/RCA is a family and the people there actually care about me. When I came to meet [Polo Grounds Music founder] Bryan Leach, I got to know him on a personal level– he would set up car service for me to go to other labels. He wanted to see me make it. He’s from Harlem.

I’m going to have creative control; there’s no bullshit. The situation is almost unrealistic. I mean, five months ago I had about $3,000 in my bank account. Now I’m worth $3 million. Nobody’s gotten a deal like that since 50 Cent.
